Turn off status message banner


Is it possible to permanently turn off someone else's status message? This never used to be there, is this part of an update? I keep clicking the X to the right but the Status message keeps coming back. I don't want to see the status message as it is irrelevant as some people do not use it as status message. I have removed the status message in the screenshot below but it pops up in a grey banner at the bottom of the screen where the text I have put "some text here...."

Hello @adamfs ,


I have noticed this "feature" for sometime now, not sure when it was implemented.


I can concur with your experience, if you click the "X" on the right-hand side of the chat window to remove the status message, click into another chat window and then move into the previous chat again, the message is back!


I have gone through the Zoom client settings on Mac and Windows as well as the Account Settings, there does not appear to be a way to permanently remove the message.


I can see how it may seem annoying, but I can also understand that some may consider it helpful to "remind" users of an individual's status, so I don't think it is a bug.


If I find a way to permanently remove it, I will report back.


Hope this helps!
